The Big and The Little: Penguins Versus Hummingbirds

Holden -

HOLDEN, Maine — In the fall of 2009, Ron Davis spent two weeks photographing hummingbirds at lower and mid altitudes of the Ecuadorian Andes, and in winter 2011, he spent two weeks photographing

Penguins at the Falkland Islands in the cold waters off the southeast coast of Argentina. These two groups of birds couldn’t differ more in body form and function, behavior, and habitat. In this talk, Ron will compare these fascinating groups of birds using some of his outstanding photos at 7 p.m. Thursday, Oct. 6, at Fields Pond Audubon Center.

The cost is $5 for members and $6 for nonmembers.
